This fact sheet examines Australian Protestant
churches' support for workers in other countries, either
through a mission agency or directly.
There is a long
tradition of churches supporting work overseas, whether
missions of evangelism and ministry training, works of
practical service and empowerment, or endeavours
comprised of both. Historically, support that does not go
through an agency has been relatively low, but is
believed by many to have been rising for some time.
This could have important implications for mission
agencies, churches, and workers themselves.
